After spending 30 days in the Khumbu Region of the Himalayas, it was a pleasant surprise to step into Kathmandu Cafe in Asheville and find many of the dishes we had on our trek up to Everest Basecamp. The food is served on metal trays,...More

I love Kathmandu. I have only had the buffet, but the food is terrific. And I love the decor! It's very quiet and somewhat dark. The service is impeccable!
